Re: treatment questions for forearm/tennis elbow pain

I just did a little more research online.

Based upon the location of that tenderness I mentioned in the post above, I think that particular discomfort might be tricep tendinitis.

I've got a...

Re: treatment questions for forearm/tennis elbow pain

I picked up a very light KB (10 pounds) last night, and it was ok, but I'm very wary about picking up anything heavier right now. I also tried a pull-up, and that did not cause any pain. Then I...

Re: treatment questions for forearm/tennis elbow pain

Actually, there's a lot to report. The PT didn't seem to help much in the end. I think the PT ended sometime in late November. There was not much obvious lasting effect. But I did nothing for...

exercising around elbow injury

I'm not sure where to put this question.

Bottom line: orthopedist just told me not to do any exercising involving the elbow for 3 weeks because of an ulnar nerve neuritis. (If the rest is...

Re: necessary height for power tower

Sigh.

The room I'd like to use has a ceiling that is 91" high. The shortest tower I've seen is 82". I'm afraid I'm out of luck.

Guess I'll have figure out how to install a mounted pull-up...

necessary height for power tower

For various reasons, I've decided I need a power tower, but I'm not sure whether my ceilings are high enough in the rooms it could go.

My quick research shows that the power towers measure between...

Recently, I've become disappointed with my movement around the tennis court, and I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about good drills (off the tennis court) that could help.

Re: Best way to beat a cold and get back to training??

I don't have a link handy, but I believe that there has been persuasive evidence that zinc reduces the length and severity of colds.

For years, I've used the Cold-Eeze lozenges (and before that,...

popeye syndrom?

I made that name up (as far as I know), but it is similar to what a physical therapist told me about my forearm.

To be specific, my right forearm seems (both to me and the therapist)...

Re: treatment questions for forearm/tennis elbow pain

You're actually the first to suggest any particular time-line for recovery.

I'm halfway through the 6-8 week process, almost. But it feels like 3 months, and I am getting quite impatient.

treatment questions for forearm/tennis elbow pain

I've searched, but not found clear answers to these questions. I've seen a doctor, but he was fairly brusque so I'm hoping for some more info before I go back to him.

Most of my exercise consists...

Here's a little more grist for the laughter mill:

Re: dumbest injury yet
